Sunglasses or goggles for paragliding, hang-gliding and microlight flying need to be lightweight, strong enough not to break in a mishap, optically accurate, comfortable under a helmet, and not prone to fogging. They cannot be polarised, because this could cause problems when trying to read digital instruments.
The Aspen sunglasses for paragliding from Rapid Eyewear tick all of these boxes, making them the perfect option for paramotor enthusiasts.
The Aspen frame has a slight flex that enables them to fit comfortably around most sizes of head, without pinching; and yet, it won't feel as though it is about to fall off, either. The frame is made from TR90, an incredibly strong material that will ensure the glasses are highly unlikely to shatter, even in the event of a serious accident.
Hand-finished in an attractive green / grey matt colour, the frames benefit from rubber side-arm extensions and nose pad inserts that help to provide maximum comfort levels. A pronounced ridge inside the lenses virtually eliminates unwanted wind and light intrusion all the way around your vision.
The Aspen design features Frostech anti-fog and anti-glare lenses that are finished in an attractive blue, with a mirror coating. By filtering out blue light, the Category 3 lens sharpens the edges of objects and terrain in your field of view, thereby increasing contrast and definition.
UV Protection and Conformity
Rapid Eyewear sunglasses conform to ISO 12311 and 12312 standards for sunglasses and protective equipment testing. They offer 100% UVA / UVB (UV400) protection and comply with US Z80.3.
Rubber Inserts and Strap - Extreme Sports Mode
It's easy to change the Aspen from a fashion item into a great spec pair of air sports sunglasses. All you need to do is add the rubber inserts, which maximise wind and light blockage from the peripheries of your vision, then attach the push-fit head strap. Put them on, adjust the strap by pulling the toggle at the back and you're ready to go.
Each pair of Aspen comes with a microfibre carry pouch as standard. The pouch, which has draw-strings, doubles as a lint-free cleaning cloth.
